We explore the city with our guide via the famous New York subway system. Our first stop – a rehearsal room in the Theater District where an actor from one of the Broadway shows will stop by, discuss life on Broadway, perform a number or two and then answer some questions you may have about life behind the curtain. Next, we will experience the iconic Central Park with a classic horse drawn carriage ride. Following an included lunch at Heartland Brewery, our guide will escort us on the subway down to Herald Square, home to the “Largest Department Store in the World!” – Macy’s. This iconic store has a deep history and love-affair with NY City, as well as a wonderful older building that is lovingly cared for. Today, we will enjoy a tour of this grand dame – then have time for shopping – with discounts!!! This evening is yours to explore New York City at your leisure. (B,L)
